I was in Colorado Springs today and stopped in a new coffee shop. It was the place to pick up a t-shirt I ordered to support the firefighters, and instead of picking up and running out, I ordered a cup of coffee and dessert. Local businesses are hurting from the fires in that area, and I figured I would do my part to help the local economy. There is always a different feeling, knowing you are supporting an independent business.
Is there a business in your area that could use your support?
